Being a father, which Gary Burghoff feels is more important than fame or money, is why he left his role as Radar on M*A*S*H.

Actor Gary Burghoff won over fans when he was cast as Radar, a recently drafted 18-year-old who arrived with his teddy bear and quickly transformed into everyone’s friend in the popular series M*A*S*H.

He received numerous prizes throughout his program, which aided in his branding. Fans were devastated when he decided to leave the show at one time because he believed he wasn’t being given his dues.

However, the reasons behind Gary’s decision to end M*A*S*H appear to be more significant. The television show director claimed that Gary was having issues with Janet Gayle, his wife at the time, who he wed in 1971. On July 20, 1975, the couple welcomed their daughter Gena.
